Asylum seekers can apply for support for the period during which their asylum application and any subsequent appeal is being considered. This is often referred to as Section 95 support (defined in Section 95 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999). The application can be for subsistence and accommodation or for subsistence only.

This document provides details of support available for asylum seekers, and for those who have been refused asylum. It offers detailed statistics from 2010 – 2014, including the numbers of refugees resettled throughout the regions of Great Britain.

This is an update of the previous briefing from May 2015.
